Hello, my name's Tyler and i'm new here.
Basically, i've been ghosting on here for about a year so I figured I would post what few pics i have of my build...

This is the earliest pic i have of it...


A 91 sport 2door, 5speed hit in the front end. no bumper, grill or passenger side headlight bessel. busted back side glass.. Stole it for $200 dollars because it didn't run.
stabbed a knife in the fuel pump relay and it fired right up


anyway. i started changing all the filters, fuel pump, plugs and wires, coil, and distributor.
then, i started repairing the glass.


i figured it would end up busted again so i replaced it with a piece of lexin (sp?)




on a tight budget so it got a rattle-can-red paint job



wheeled it for a while like that


took a stump through the floor board which was already rusted so had to patch that..
safety first!


got happy with the grinder and did the door hinge cuts and cut fenders



put in some mossy oak carpet


made an EMT roof rack... fail


then, the slave cylinder crapped out


i then decided it was time for a change.. murder it out and JCR Do it yourself bumper..


33's at stock height



really needed a lift or bumpstops...


guess which route i went..





that's it for now. i know it's short, sweet and to the point but just a quick run down of what pics i do have of what i've done. I'm a 20yr old married dad working in construction so i rarely have time to work on the old beater much. will post more as it comes along.
if you have any questions just lmk.
stiffeners and sye are in the garage for when i get time.

Thanks. It didn't last long like that though.

Cut and fold on the rear quarters right now.

Got up yesterday to go riding but no brakes.. replaced all the rear hard lines. Was going to do a write up but it's pretty self explanatory when you get into it.
